Re: U/C: Australia 108 | 319m | 100lvls | Melbourne

From the AFR. They must be doing partial settlements as its completed. I think there has to be a point where an apartment building becomes too big. This one has over 1,100 apartments. Releasing that amount of stock at once is bound to cause issues in a demand vs supply driven economy. For context M...

This is starting to look really striking when travelling south along King WIlliam Road.
Yeah, I was passing along there just after sunset and it looked great. Wouldn't even mind the Walker tower if it could look as well made as this.

And there goes the pyramid
This building and realm stick out like a sore thumb. I preferred it before when we had Westpac House as the tallest
building and a nice pyramid skyline.

Re: Adelaide Oval news and events

A couple of months back I raised the concern about Adelaide Oval slipping down the pecking order and was the for the most part howled down on this forum. No-one denied that other cities were getting events, the debate was entirely over whether Adelaide simply having more seats would have made a lic...

Some more specific information. Could be an extra metre or so? VARIATION - extend footprint of level 10 to accommodate a restaurant, alter layout of the penthouse levels to accommodate two penthouse apartments on level 35 and alter the overall height of the building for lift servicing requirements ...

[U/C] Re: 11 Frome Street | 135m | 37 Levels | Crowne Plaza / Adelaidean | New tallest

Yeah if they're re-configuring the penthouse it's probably just a slightly raised ceiling or something. Or the surveyors have been out with their theodolites and realised that every floor has been built an inch thicker than it should be, so they need permission to be a metre taller to complete the ...

Just to clear up what may be a point of confusion here: - Aviation surfaces/heights are measured above height datum, not above ground (stating the obvious). - The limits on building height in Adelaide CBD are effectively set by aviation. The lowest aviation surface (which is governing building heig...

Re: Glenelg Ferry & Cruise ship terminal

A Santa Monica or Brighton Pier style expansion to Glenelg would be fantastic for the area.

Imagine something like the climbing adventure park at West Beach, but at the end of a pier overhanging the ocean.

There’s a for lease sign where the Adelaide Metrocentre was too now - presume that’s recent?
Saw the signs this morning, definitely new. Not promising for this getting started soon.

Yeah but to me, Currie and Grenfell are prolly our most "downtown NY" streets. No real need for them to be beautified. They serve the purpose they're designed for.
The plan wasn't so much about beautifying them, as making them more prominent public transport corridors.

[APP] Re: 203 North Terrace | 109m | 33 levels | Student Accom

There is a chance this won't get built. The student tower next to Adelaidean has stalled. The Twin Street tower was proposed and approved ages ago and there's been no action since. The site next to the Adelaidean is a great spot, so even if that student tower has fallen through I would be very surp...
